The Metropolitan Police Department revealed on Tuesday night that an arrest has been made in relation to the armed carjacking of an FBI agent in Washington, D.C. last month. The teen was the victim of this crime.
The FBI agent was leaving work and had just parked her car on the 100 block of 12th Street, NE, when she was approached by two armed suspects. The suspects allegedly knocked the agent to the ground and took her car keys and cell phone.
Police identified the 17-year-old suspect through surveillance footage and arrested him on December 4, 2023. He is being charged with armed carjacking and is being held at the D.C. juvenile detention facility without bond.
Court records state that the agent once told police she remembered fighting with the gunman for her keys and getting a cut on her mouth. Prior to leaving in her car, which contained FBI-issued ammo in the trunk, the carjackers also stole the agent’s phone, according to court documents.
A short while later, around 4:10 p.m., police discovered the automobile, and at least some of the stolen goods was inside. The agent said that some of her ammunition was still missing, according to court documents.
Police are offering a $20,000 reward to anyone with information regarding the individuals involved in this case, and the matter is still under investigation.
